If you ride the 99 B-Line you’ve probably spent time in one of the big and muddled lineups at Commercial–Broadway Station. They’re long, disorganized and take up space from pedestrians trying to use the sidewalk.

With a million more people coming to the region over the next 30 years and the addition of the Evergreen Line in 2016, this stop is going to get even busier. That’s why we’re designing a new shelter and queuing system for the 99 B-Line stop at Commercial–Broadway Station. The shelter will be built as part of Phase 2 Upgrades at Commercial–Broadway Station (to be complete in summer 2016).

To make sure the design of the shelter and the queuing system meets the needs of passengers, we’re doing a passenger queuing study. It’s happening January 27-30 for the westbound 99 B-Line at Commercial–Broadway Station during peak morning hours.

Are you a 99 B-Line rider?

You can expect temporary changes to the queuing system for the westbound 99 B-Line bus stop at Commercial–Broadway Station during the study.

  • Lightweight barriers and pavement markings will be used to test different queuing systems
  • Queues for the 99 B-Line will be different each morning and there will be minor changes made during peak hours

Thanks for your patience over the next few days! A new queuing system is on its way!
